New Updates to Canada’s Parent and Grandparent Sponsorship Program

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has recently unveiled an update to the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP). This year, IRCC is set to accept a maximum of 15,000 complete sponsorship applications under the PGP.

Starting on October 10, IRCC will initiate the process of extending invitations to apply to 24,200 prospective sponsors who have expressed interest, with the goal of ultimately receiving up to 15,000 complete applications.

In light of the remaining 2020 submission pool, rather than initiating a new interest-to-sponsor form, IRCC will randomly select potential sponsors from that existing pool for invitation to apply.

What If I Submitted My PGP Sponsorship Form In 2020?

For those who submitted an interest-to-sponsor form in 2020 but did not receive an invitation in 2021 or 2022, it is advisable to check the email account provided during the 2020 form submission.

If you receive an invitation to apply in the 2023 intake, IRCC will continue to utilize the Permanent Residence Portal or the Representative Permanent Residence Portal, both of which facilitate the electronic submission of applications.

Great preliminary consultation meeting with Manasi. She offered good immigration options keeping my requirements in mind and answered any queries I could think of. Would definitely consider going ahead with her for my immigration needs.

I had an incredibly easy and convenient experience at VisaPlace! Mansi, who assisted me, was extremely friendly and patient. She provided immediate solutions and was exceptionally kind. Immigration issues can be very challenging, but Mansi made me feel understood and supported, sharing in my struggle and making the process much easier for me. I highly recommend this place!

VisaPlace is truly a one-stop shop for all things related to visas, work permits, and anything having to do with immigration. It’s so nice having to deal with only one team at one firm for all the paperwork and government requirements. Convenient!

My initial call was much more informative and helpful than I had imagined it could be. It’s a daunting task to undertake moving to another country, and it was very useful to be able to discuss it with someone who is clear thinking, capable, articulate as well as patient. Well worth it!

I recently booked an appointment for immigration consultancy through VisaPlace, and I am thoroughly impressed with their service. Anis Doba, who assisted me over the phone, was exceptionally helpful and pleasant. He made the entire process smooth and efficient, demonstrating a high level of professionalism and customer care.

Anis patiently answered all my questions, provided clear information, and ensured I understood the next steps. His friendly demeanor and thorough knowledge significantly alleviated my concerns and made me feel confident about the consultancy process.

I highly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking immigration consultancy. Their staff, especially Anis Doba, exemplifies excellent customer service and expertise. Thank you, VisaPlace, for a great experience!
